Report on Skills Gap to be Released

Join us for a special council meeting unveiling a report on the biggest skills gaps in the L.A. region. Nearly half of California jobs are in "middle skills" occupations, requiring more than a high school diploma but less than a bachelor's degree, which highlights the importance of Linked Learning. Additionally, State Sen. Carol Liu and Michele Siqueiros, executive director, The Campaign for College Opportunity, will share their insights on current legislative efforts to dramatically improve completion rates among California community college students and California's economic payoff for its investment in higher education.
Please note: Media is invited to attend.

The Education & Workforce Development Council leads business community and educator partnerships to reform our public education and develop the 21st century workforce to successfully compete in the global economy. In the current economic climate, the council is focused on job recovery for today's workers while preparing the future workforce.
Special guests:

State Sen. Carol Liu
